ASSIGNMENT10

The superscrollorama was hard to figure out I had trouble trying to change certain elements of it because it would then delete other parts I had altered. I looked at a couple websites that use scrolloramas and some of the ones out there are extreme. I would like to learn how to refine something like this because I think they can be used effectively.

This is my favorite website right now. You have to register to enter the sight but it doesn’t take much time or effort and I think it is worth it. This website helps artists to spread the word about limited edition prints and original artwork. There are a good amount of artists on here from a lot of places and I have bought some really cool stuff from here at a reasonable price. I think it is pretty cool because it is pretty regularly updated and a lot of times artwork gets sold before I even know its on there. This leads me to believe there are a lot of people who are regularly checking the site. It is really easy to navigate through the site and find what you are searching for. This is the most successful website I have seen of this type, there are a couple others with a similar setup but they aren’t as simplified. Websites like this are a good way for artist to get their name and work out to people all around the world. It is a good jump off point for anyone who wants to sell artwork.

I agree with the article and think that coding is an important skill to know as a designer. Although I am not very good with it right now I am hoping to learn more.

ALEX BULLEN ASSIGNMENT 3

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hotel I was assigned was the MGM grand. In my opinion they have a great website that is extremely easy to navigate through. There is a lot of information on the website but there is really no confusion as to where to go to find it. I do think that the homepage could try to capture the LAS VEGAS vibe a little bit more, but it definitely has a look and feel of quality which seems reflective of the establishment.

Interior page:

I marked the sliding navigation system they have on their interior page with a star and a line to illustrate how you can slide across the various options. I think this is highly functional and I wouldn’t change anything about it.

For the recration I couldn’t really find all that much that I felt needed to be altered except I thought that the homepage should definitely stay with the photo of the exterior of the hotel just because I feel like the exterior view is more appealing than two random people inside a hotel room. Also I thought it would be cool if the text matched the color of the building in order to stand out a little bit. The other thing I altered was bringing the event square down to the bottom to create more balance and have all of the box features at the bottom of the page. One other thing I would add is a search bar at the top just because there is so much information on the website.

RECREATION

LAS VEGAS

I really want to go to the Las Vegas strip someday. All I know about Las Vegas is that Elvis Presley was at the pinnacle of his career when he was “Las Vegas Elvis.” His Song Viva Las Vegas is a great tune. I was at the Las Vegas Airport once and I was drinking a Margarita and playing slot machines while I was waiting to change flights home to Baltimore from Los Angeles
